    Bet you'll still get wristband wankers wanting you to know that they were there.

    I will never cease to be amazed by people's sheer fucking inability to own up to a mistake. What the actual fuck were they thinking going ahead and somehow thinking that would be OK?

    Funny as hell, though, if you weren't there. :p

    I can't articulate it very well but I can't help seeing all this Fyre stuff and juxtaposing it somehow with all the images of the Calais Jungle and other refugee camps from the past few years and it just keeps making me feel more and more sick.

    Yeah some very familliar images there. The polystyrene pots of food in particular look a lot like the one meal a day of anonymous slop people were getting back when charities were still allowed to distribute food in Calais town.

    It's when they were talking with such consternation about the "rows of disaster relief tents" like it was literally the worst thing in the world to have to slum it like that, with zero awareness. The lack of running water and electricity. The shitty food. The mud.

    The only way this whole thing could be in any way retrieved is if it had all been an elaborate political art installation, with the money going to refugee charities (which is why I mentioned that yesterday). $12k for the most expensive tickets, and the fucking entitlement of these cunts when they're faced with the reality thousands of others have to deal with daily - and no awareness that they're part of the fucking class that creates these conditions.

    I mean, I'm laughing at them too. I'm not entirely po-faced. Just... arrrrgggghghghghh.

    I wonder how many Fyre attendees struggling with the desperate conditions made it the 200 meters or so to the nearest pub. (Fyre site is white area at top.)

    But... but... festival concierges were supposed to be bringing them food and drink. Luxury, curated food and drink.

    A lot of them didn't bring any money as they were told it wasn't needed cos of the rfid wristbands they were to be issued for their "all inclusive" experience :D

    Has made me question whether taking over a low season luxe resort for a festival wouldn't have yeilded enough profit.

    But this is funny. It's like the whole thing was planned by my sixth formers. I'd feel some compassion were it not for the obvious levels of disposable wealth by the attendees.

    You do your sixth-formers a disservice.... I reckon they could do a much better job of organising it! :D
